GSV Tour over 40 Panoramas
I published a large retail space that had 60 panoramas. Of course, Google only allows 40 per level so the tour stops at pano 40. I removed 15 panos and created two levels: one with 5 panos and the other with 40.
The tour still stops at the same spot even though we are now at pano 28. See attachment.
Any suggestions to what I am doing wrong and how to publish the full tour?
Google has no limit on the number of images per level or tour. I am not sure I understand what do you mean the tour stops at pano 40 ?
As a note, when you publish to Google, it can take up to 48h's for Google to process the navigation, so you might not see all the navigation during that time.
Also, GoThru, has a debug system, that allows you to check what's on Google side. Once the tour is published, click on the "SV Info" button under "My Tours" section, if all the panoramas are green, then you just need to give Google more time to process the tour.
Thank you for the advice. I ran SV Info and it identified the pano in question "still processing in Google." See attachment. It is the PURPLE pano.
I guess I need to more be patient.
@gpp No ... that pano is map rejected by Google AI. Google scans all images for inappropriate content, and the AI can flag an image as map rejected if you have a statue of a naked human body, or a part of the body, a billboard with someone that is a bit less dress, etc ...
For cases like that you need to press the "Fix Constellation" button. GoThru will apply some changes to the image and try to get it approved by Google AI. I would say that you can do that 2-3 times, and if the image does not get to be approved, you need to check the image and figure out why the AI is rejecting that image, and blur it. Then publish the tour back to Google.
Wow, who would have thunk! I will keep you updated. Thank you again.
I just looked at the panorama again. This panorama was edited in Photoshop to remove miss-matched touch-up paint on the wall. Could Google AI be having issues with an altered panorama? Just asking?
UPDATE: I ran "Fix Constellation" and the all the panoramas are good now. The tour is "Publishing in Process"
@gpp some times images that have the colour of the skin, might be rejected, because it looks like a camera was put between the legs I suppose Google got lots of sample images, to train their AI, from deranged people around the world ...
